Keyboard problem with Toshiba Satellite Pro 480CDT (running Win98 SE)

I've reformatted and reloaded Windows 98 SE from scratch, freed up a lot of memory (it's only 64M) but still getting KBC error on startup. How do I fix this. Someone told me I have to update the laptop's BIOS. If correct, how do I do that?

I found a BIOS upgrade download for the Toshiba Satellite Pro 480 on Toshiba's website under the archived old models listing. I downloaded it on a different machine and saved it to a USB which I then used to copy to the problem laptop and ran it there.

SE should boot on it's own without the use of the floppies. Try it by changing the boot sequence.

You may want to run chkdsk on the hard drive to fix any errors. Use the fix switch on syntax.

Is it possible for a Sandisk SDCZ36-004G USB 2,0 Flash Drive to "work" (that is, be seen) on a Pentium II PC running Windows 98 FE? I've been researching this online for days, but can't...


Hello, well, frankly, I think you're wasting your time. Maybe your best option would be to remove your old drive and connect it to a computer which has a more modern operating system; pref. XP and then your usb stick would be recognized and you can drag all of your files off that way. Windows 98 SE is a lot less user-friendly as there's no plug and play support and there'll be no driver support out there for usb memory sticks unless it's a really old one. Regards, nicam49

This adapter is only supported on Windows 98 SE (Second Edition), not older versions of Windows 98. The drivers are already built into Windows 98 SE.

How do you get a Toshiba 480cdt laptop to boot from the CD drive on power up?


You need to change the boot sequence. Power on the computer and look for F12 on the screen. It will only be there for a few seconds. While it is there, hit F12 and select the boot drive.

Windows 98 will not boot up


You could try running sfc scannow. See link here. And very helpful site for troubleshooting windows 98 here and here.
I couldn't tell you about downloading it, but I'd scan any download very carefully, and question whether you could trust an install done from such files to be secure. I'd try to find an original cd as they should be a dime a dozen these days...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
